Some well known gardeners wouldn't like this
Some well known gardeners wouldn't like this.
But I do. There's something quite comforting about a stand of these Hemerocallis fulva daylilies.
Oh I know they're "common". And I know they're a bit of a spreader (but not rapacious about it) And I know that many gardeners look over their noses at them.
But I don't care.
This clump is at my mailbox and I've mowed around them to create a bit of an island (and contain their expansion a bit). And I rather like the look it creates as you drive down the road.
It isn't any work - it isn't any fuss or muss. And when they're in bloom - they're quite fun providing a great country look for my mailbox.
And that's what gardening is all about folks (in my .02) Gardening is about fun from your own perspective. I don't care what the gardening mavens say about my oh-too-common daylily - I don't care what the fashionista's say either. I like the darn thing.
And if you like what you grow. Good for you.
It doesn't matter whether the plant is common or the landscaping is not professionally designed or executed. If you like it - if it's *your* garden - then this is all to the good.
Take ownership of the things that are important to you. And to heck with the "experts".
